This week we continue the second of the Mad Mummy stories. When I started doing research on Egypt for this series, one of the interesting things I discovered was that the name Nefertiti meant " she who walks in beauty"...hence the title of this story. I also discovered that after the death of Pharoah Ankenaten, she disappeared and all reference to her and likenesses were destroyed. It was only centuries later that the wonderful statue of her was discovered and we could see why she earned the name.

This week's HBOTales From the Crypt bonus cover is The Reluctant Vampire, starring George Wendt and Malcolm McDowell. While I'm not sure if I met George on the set, I did run into last week at the Monsterpalooza convention in Pasadena and presented him with a print of the cover. Malcolm McDowell I somehow found so intimidating (too many screening of A Clockwork Orange ) that I never did approach to get a couple of photos for reference...thus the very poor likeness below. Also is one of the little roughs for the show. I always did somewhere between three and six of these for each episode and then Silver and Donner chose one.
